Thanks everyone!…as suggested i'm going to go with the HP+ pads…from the track days I have done several years ago I can remember brake fade is not fun.

As for the suspension, the stock shocks are worn and need to go. I’m still debating on the stock shock or just getting the dynamic kit and be done with it. Luckily I have a little time before the season kicks off.

I’ve also been noticing several people use a 16” wheel and track tire setup instead of the stock 17’s. I’m guessing that removes a lot of rotational weight and (depending on size) is a shorter tire for a little better gearing.

Schroeder - thanks for the offer….I will try and make it out to some GTG’s soon. I would love to see your track car up close and talk w/ you about it. I think I actually spotted your car over the summer riding through Westminster.
